*The category “Target” indicates the species (EG or EM), against which the specific antibodies detected by this assay are directed.

The required equipment includes laboratory equipment other than pipettes, pipette tips, incubation trays, and tubes. Equipment in parentheses is supportive but not mandatory. The manufacturer offers a specific scanner system (EuroScanner) for the blot Euro. The CLIA VirC requires a specific CLIA processor (VirCLIA or VirCLIA Lotus). All ELISAs shown can be performed manually or with an automated ELISA processor.

Abbreviations: EG, Echinococcus granulosus; EM, Echinococcus multilocularis; CLIA, chemiluminescence immunoassay; LFA, lateral flow assay.
